Earlier this week, Magnolia Network (formerly Discovery DIY Network) pulled their new series Homework, hosted by Candis and Andy Meredith, from its schedule just days after the new network was launched, following several allegations of sloppy home renovation work. Three homeowners in the series took to social media with allegations of “damaged homes, long delays and over-budget renovations.”

Yesterday, Magnolia relaunched the series after Candis and Andy Meredith took to Instagram with a series of posts explaining their side of the situation. You can read all eight posts, but the crux of it is this:

The people who complained about their sloppy renovation projects waited for the threshold before the launch of the Magnolia network before complaining and did not say buh until now, therefore their complaints were calculated. Moreover, even though they host the show, they are just intermediaries in connection with these projects. The main contractors were responsible for the sloppy and unfinished work. They did the best they could to act as communicators between the two parties – clients and main contractors – and used their own personal funds to pay for the projects they were working “EXTREMELY” on. General contractors have often messed up or canceled; it was not Candis and Andy Meredith’s job to do the work; it was their job to communicate to the customer. When a client paid $ 50,000 and the contractor took so long that clients had to cancel the project, it was not Candis and Andy Meredith’s fault that they did not get their money back immediately. It was the main contractors’ fault, but Candis and Andy Meredith still did what they could to refund the deposit (and are still working on it). Moreover, one of the complaining customers certainly looked happy during the unveiling; why is she mad two years later? Candis and Andy Meredith should also not be criticized for taking a week’s vacation on a carnival cruise while the projects were in progress – everyone is entitled to a vacation! (A cruise? In the middle of a pandemic? Really?)

Finally, it is not OK to bully their children or threaten their lives (true!), And even though mistakes were made along the way, Candis and Andy Meredith are behind their work.


This was apparently enough to change the mind of Chip and Joanna Gaines’ Magnolia Network, who decided to reinstate the show. After all, home remodeling is a messy experience, and there will inevitably be good experiences and bad ones. There are also profits to be realized! They issued a statement to this effect:

“After talking to homeowners as well as Candis and Andy Meredith regarding renovation projects for Homework, and when we hear a mixture of both positive and negative experiences, we do not believe there were sick or malicious intentions. Our commitment is now to provide appropriate solutions to those whose experience with Homework did not live up to our network standards. ”

“While Home Work will return to the Magnolia Network, we recognize the responsibility we have to act on how we can better support not only our talent, but those who put their trust in them and this brand.”

As anyone who has ever had a home remodel done can attest, this is one messy business. You have people invading your space; it is never done within the specified time; there are often cost overruns. Builders often dare to take lunch breaks on homeowners’ pennies, and homeowners are often unreasonably annoyed by this. Contractors also often pay too much and subcontract, and homeowners often have unrealistic expectations and are often reluctant to spend the money needed to achieve the desired result. All this, of course, remains hidden from TV cameras. Given the popularity of these home remodeling shows, I’m surprised that not many more of these complaints are spreading to the public. That’s what NDAs and arbitration contracts are for.
